PASADENA, MARYLAND -- I was in a bad need of a vehicle, and this was not a good place to be in because usually this is when you get ripped off. I went to Beltway Auto Mart and met ** who showed me a couple of vehicles. I test drove some and liked the 2002 Ford Explorer Sport. My credit was shot and they worked with me and got me financed. I felt it was a little pricey but when your credit is bad, what can you do?
Well after I bought the Truck that night I noticed the dash lights were out on half of the instrument cluster. I called ** said to bring it in and they would get it fixed. I picked up the truck at 6pm and it was fixed. Saved me $360.00 that Ford was going to charge me. Great place good guys!!! A++++
MARYLAND -- I read an article on here about a someone stating that they bought a vehicle and it has odometer fraud cause of a Inspection Sticker. This is not how it works. First off it is very possible the vehicle had more miles on it at one time in the past. If the odometer had to be replaced due to malfunction, than the new odometer or new, used odometer would read 0 or what was on the replacement odometer. The inspection station that inspects the truck can ONLY WRITE WHAT'S ON THE ODOMETER AT TIME OF SALE.
THE DEALER CAN ONLY ADVERTISE WHAT THE ODOMETER STATES. When the truck is sold the paperwork that the dealership fills out and asks you to sign will have the information concerning the odometer and it TRUE MILES UNKNOWN. When it comes down to it you should always ask for a History Report on a vehicle and always READ YOUR PAPERWORK.
PASADENA, MARYLAND -- During first test drive of vehicle I noticed the check engine light was on. I brought this to the salesman attention who promptly got out of the vehicle and advised my gas cap was not tight and he would have his guys reset the light. Needless to say it came back on after I purchased the vehicle.
I informed them of this and after driving to their facility twice (over 50 miles each time) they had a mechanic look at it who advised "it's emissions BS, I don't work on that". I informed Beltway of this and they now advise it's not their problem. Beltway has refuse to answer any emails and also refuses to answer the Baltimore BBB who has this case for action. STAY AWAY FROM THEM, THEY ARE A RIP OFF.
BALTIMORE, MARYLAND -- I purchased a 03 Ford F150 from Beltway Automart. It was a nice truck until I found 2 different inspection certificates in the glove compartment. One of them from Beltway Automart and one from the previous owners. Beltway Automart listed the truck as having 73,000 Miles on it & the previous owners said 155,000 Miles on it. To make a long story short, don't buy anything from these cheats. We are in the process of filing papers on Beltway Automart. This is a warning - stay away from these cheats!!!
